The school year has just ended in most of the U.S., but it’s never too soon to start thinking about next year. If a new Mac or iPad is what you have in mind, you can take advantage of Apple’s back-to-school deal that the company recently announced.
When you shop at Apple’s Education Store, you can get an Apple gift card when buying an eligible product. Here’s a list of what you can get:
- iMac, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air: $150 Apple gift card
- Mac mini: $100 Apple gift card
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 11-inch iPad Pro, or iPad Air: $100 Apple gift card
The Education Store offers pricing that’s lower than the regular Apple Store. For example, the new 15-inch MacBook Air is $1,199, which is $100 less than the regular price. An iPad Air is $549, which is $50 less than the regular price.
This offer is available now and end on October 2, 2023. Higher education students and their parents, home educators, teachers, faculty, and staff are eligible.

The deal isn’t generally open to K-12 students, only their institutions and teachers, but parents who home school can take advantage of the deal.
Apple also offers a similar promotion in the U.K. and the rest of Europe, but the company has not revealed when it will be available. See our Apple Back to School sale guide for more information.
Last year, Apple started offering gift cards in its back-to-school promotion. Previous to 2022, Apple offered free AirPods with each qualifying purchase. Earlier this year Apple offered AirPods to students in Australia in the equivalent deal.
